A bronze sculpture on a circular stone base erected to commemorate a link between Dingwall Academy and Nalband, Armenia. In December 1988 a devastating earthquake occurred in Armenia, causing between 25,000–50,000 deaths, 130,000 injuries, and the destruction of almost half a million buildings. Dr Kerr Yule, principal teacher of physics in Dingwall Academy, initiated a fund to aid Nalband school and the sum of £23,000 was raised. In 1989 a group of pupils from Dingwall Academy, members of staff, the rector and the chairman of Highland Council's education committee went to Armenia and visited devastated villages and the school which had received the aid. Pupils from Armenia paid a return visit during which they stayed with families in Dingwall.
